Study in a supportive environment with the advantages of living in a vibrant city
Our Duluth campus offers students an opportunity to build extraordinarily strong relationships with their classmates and our faculty & staff. With 60 students per class, our students in Duluth form very tight connections that last throughout a career. Students are very involved outside of class, do lots of activities together, including intramural sports, outdoor recreation, and outreach to rural communities.
Our Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree program educates students to become pharmacists who are generalist pharmacy practitioners and prepares them to identify, resolve and prevent drug related problems.
The PharmD/MBA Dual Career program was developed for Duluth College of Pharmacy PharmD students who wish to also pursue an MBA degree from the Labovitz School of Business & Economics. This program is competitive, challenging, and rewarding and builds on the foundation of business knowledge students already have to become more valuable employees and more confident, capable leaders.
Enrolled PharmD students have the opportunity to become integrated into the Carlson School's prestigious network of business leaders, academics and alumni. PharmD/MBA students will also have the unique experiences offered through the Carlson School's Medical Industry Leadership Institute, which brings together graduate students from across the University of Minnesota to work on healthcare industry problems from the organizational to the political realms.
Enrolled PharmD students have the opportunity to additionally earn their MPH, a degree program that prepares them for impacting policies, providing education to patients in order to manage diseases, conduct research on drug interactions/therapies and alternative herbal medications at all levels – from the local, regional and state to the national and international levels – at the intersection of government, non-profit and private sectors.
